    Broner Breaks "The Rock" Rees, Gets KO in Fifth

    He took a round to get warmed up in the main event at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City on Saturday night, but once he did, Adrien Broner's skill set was exceedingly problematic for Gavin Rees, a Welshman who had never been down, even in sparring, before this night.
    Broner sent him down in the fourth, and the fifth. Rees got up, but ate shots and his corner halted the increasingly one-sided event. The time of the ending was 2:59 of the fifth.
    Broner held on to the WBA 135 pound title.
    The winner said after to Max Kellerman that he had to see how much gas Rees had. He apologized for not being at his best. And next? Ricky Burns? He said he didn't know who that is. He will go to the drawing board with advisor Al Haymon and promoter Golden Boy, he said. Broner watched his knockdowns and complimented his own work.
    In the first, the 5-4 Rees rushed the 5-7 Broner, and outworked him, landing some nice left hooks to the body. Broner got busier in round two, landing some clean rights. He clowned, winding up his right a few times. Rees' mobility, and active head movement surprised some folks who figured the little fella was a stationary sort.
    The Welshman came in with a hurt elbow and had to curtail sparring early but his adrenaline covered up that injury thru three. Rees got backed up and bashed in the last third of the round, and his corner told him to move, not stand in front of the Cinci boxer.
    The Welshman ate lead rights in the fourth, and as his legs weren't as active, he was there to get touched. Down he went with 2:05 left, but he was up at 4. A right uppercut he didn't see was the damager. His galpal actually bolted from her seat after that.
    In the fifth, Rees landed a few sharp rights, and he looked to make a rumble of it. His work rate kept Broner from loading up like in the fourth. He went to a knee with 26 seconds to go, off a left hook to the body. He rose, but ate more, and his corner threw in the towel.

    Comical watch. The ring entrance look like a mock parody of a buncha' obnoxious rap fools. Rees got mad heart, too bad he was like 6 ft too short and only had the reach of an infant. Lmfao

    Size doesn't mean Jack. Dude just didn't have Mack. Like Broner said, "He was a snack." And getting an easy Broner beatdown, he has join the pack. Holla!

    I want to see Broner again. Scratch Hopkins and Aerrola on March 9 and bring back Broner. There is something compelling about him. If all goes well I'll be very happy when he goes to 140. The only problem is that he will stay at 135 for awhile because it is so easy to make. I could see him beating everyone at 140 but by the time he gets there they probably will have beaten the h*ll out of one another. I want to see him fight them while they are live dogs.

    It's time for Broner to move up it's clear no 1 @135has a shot in hell at beating him.

    Broner vs Rios would be entertaining and interesting. Rios lacks skill but he got the heart and size to bring some real heat.

    I agree. Broner needs a true test whatever the weight. Rees was too small, he did look like an infant.

    Cool Re: Broner Breaks "The Rock" Rees, Gets KO in Fifth

    Lets see Broner V Gamboa or Rios. Rees, as much as I respect him, was never going to last the distance. Steve. (Hi Dave B. It's been a few years since we talked & I have posted)

    Umm little Rees landed a lot of punches and showed the blue print how to beat Broner. Little Rees one first 2 rounds no question. That body shot by Broner was cheap but you do have to protect yourself at all times. Broner will be taking the easiest fights he can against smaller guys or limited guys call it good business. Tupac is turning in his grave after that crap and in this day and age those Watson twins have every right to be homosexuals if they want to. Broner won't be fighting Garcia because they rap in the studio together. Broner looked 4 weight classes above Rees. Imagine rios catching him like Rees did.

    broner has skills for sure, offensively, but defensively he is an embarrasment to the shoulder roll floyd look alike D..
    Rees easily won the first two rounds he just didnt have the size or power to even bother broner, broner decided he better try to get him out of there by using his advantageous size and height.
    in two years we will be writing about what a disappointment broner is because when he finally went up to 140 or 147 he gets ktfo because he wont have his size advantages to beat up little guys... it will happen, broner will be knocked out cold.
    reason being broner has skills but little intelligence....
    anyone rapping their way into the ring the disturbing way broner did shows an iq of less than 80.
    did you all hear what he was saying in his post fight interview?
    broner is that tool at school who tries to be cool all day and everyone just annoys his dumbass...
    "rock a bye baby"
